I do not make that statement lightly or in jest. I make it simply because it is the truth. It has been the truth since the Civil War, and it continues today.
There may be many that believe this is just the ravings of a lunatic Democrat, but it is not. Just witness today’s new GOP video ad:

This kind of crap has been around forever. We fought the Civil War to set men free. Instead, the Republicans make every effort to enslave racists white with their showtime slobbering.
In the 1948 elections, after Harry Truman had desegregated the Army, a group of Southern Democrats know as Dixiecrats split from the Democratic Party inb reaction to the inclusion of a civil rights plant in the party’s platform. The disaffected Democrats formed the States’ Rights Democratic, or Dixiecrat Party, and nominated Governor Strom Thurmond of South Carolina for President. Their party plan was maintaining segregation and Jim Crow in the South. The Dixiecrats lost in 1948 and the party dissolved. The split has endured.
It was called the “Southern Strategy”, and it still is. Republicans strategy for winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-Black American racism among Southern white voters and appealing to states’ rights. Many white Southern Democrats left the party following the Civil Rights movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation. Does the name Rand Paul come to mind?
In 1980 Republican candidate Ronald Reagan’s proclaiming support for “states’ rights” at his first Southern campaign was the beginning of the rebuilding of the Southern strategy once again. Richard Nixon used it brilliantly. Richard Nixon ran his campaign in 1968 on states’rights and “law and order.” The seeds of racism and hatred planted again.
Now, the term “Southern strategy” has been used in a more general sense. They use cultural themes in election campaigns – mostly but not exclusively in the American south. It has now gone mainstream. In the past, politicians’ highlighting of issues such as busing or states’ rights appealed to white angst about integration. Now, Republican politicians make appeals to “conservative values”, and use cultural issues such as gay marriage, abortion, and religion to get their faithful foaming at the mouth. The “Southernization” of American politics.
The new version is the Tea Party as we should all know. Their preaching of state’s rights and the Constitution is nauseating. If they would just stop wanting to be status obsessed losers. Or sucking up to them as they are doing now with this new video.
They call them viral videos because they spread like a virus no one has ever seen. They are stupid, ignorant internet videos that announce themselves as “viral” spreading their sickness globally. It is just online attention only. Kissing their on assess. Does the “Demon Sheep” ad come to mind? The new KKK. Their intention is to dehumanize everyone. If you don’t belong to club you are worthless. Just look what these states’rights are trying to do to women, children, teachers, blacks, veterans and the middle class.
A racist will always deny being a racist. Republicans do it best. God and guns is their motto. Racism is their religion.
Ann Coulter in her column today wrote the following.
In my book “Demonic: How The Liberal Mob is Endangering American”, I make the case that liberals, and never Conservatives, appeal to irrational mobs to attain power. There is, now I recall, one group of people who look like conservatives, but also appeal to the mob. They’re called “libertarians.”
She really meant “REPUBLICANS.” She actually spoke truth and didn’t know it. But then, she wouldn’t since she has never, ever done so. After all, she, like all Republicans, have God, guns and hatred on their side.
